In the last couple of days Microsoft hosted dotnetConf, an online 2 day conference. The first day was, as expected, very focused on .NET Core and ASP.NET 5. Despite a bit repetitive, the intro talks were very nice for someone that is now getting started with ASP.NET 5. Other than those, I’d highlight:
- ASP.NET 5: Deep Dive – The best talk on the first day. Covers the tooling, the differences on targeting different CLR versions and different hosts. It also describes the pipeline approach on ASP.NET 5 and how it compares to the previous versions. There also a nice recent post on MSDN Magazine.
- .NET Core Deep Dive – Not much of a deep dive there. But it ends up being a nice talk about Microsoft’s experience of developing .NET Core in open source and with community contributions.
- .NET Compiler Platform (“Roslyn”): Analyzers and the Rise of Code-Aware Libraries – The goodies of the new compiler platform. It has been around for a while but it is now being used “for real”. Also a must see.
